Subject: A GRATE ONE!!
Subject: Gibson technical issue
Good recovery and an acceptable final product.
Subject: It's not THAT bad......
Uh, I really don't think it was all that terrible. Sure, there was tuning going on in the background (including the harmonics, which sounded cool), but it was probably not bad enough to be cut. I'd rather have the complete show!
Subject: Mono electric set
So this CR&S is a leftover that, in my own collection, I have restored to its proper place between Good Lovin' and Man's Man's Man's World on DP8.
As a comment to DP8 overall, and it's an exercise in futility because it is what it is, but why oh why oh why is only the acoustic set in stereo? Did Bob Matthews inadvertently turn the pot at the bottom of the input selector switch from stereo to mono? I really hate fucking mono. (Coincidentally, DP16 is essentially in mono, too. But I believe that was Bear's fault because he did a bunch of odd mono-like mixes in '69.)
Subject: Its music to my ears
Subject: Why CR&S was left out
with Jeffrey Norman, who's mixing the Europe '72 mega collection, David Gans says the Harpur CR&S was left off the Dick's Picks version because someone was out of tune and the band spent the song trying to tune. This left the song "unworkable."

Subject: Tune Up
As a jazz guitarist and performer myself it never looks good to just stop a song, but when you are that out of tune you should!
Subject: 1/3 Missing upsetting
Subject: Oh no! I'm horribly out of tune...!
gee--I wonder why this got cut by Latvala?! I recently found this show burried in my collection and SNAP what an amazing Other One. Also, maybe my favorite version of Viola Lee Blues. worth finding if you dont have it...really
not the best version, but historically relevant, cold rain and snow is just one of those songs that can be used to better describe the band.
it came from the early material, probably a tune they played well before they were called the grateful dead. the folk version sounds quite different in style, while the band didn't write this, it seems hard to call this cover tune either. The band themselves would probably admit they didn't know how to play it between 66-69 but saw potential. Before that it was made to dance to but not really too deep.
That all changed around november of 1969, you could say they figured out how to play it, or they found moldable groove in it. Either way the version from 11/69 on thru late 1970 is hot, the band seems to thrive on simple cord changes, in this case D to E, similar to darkstar. it's not hard to find a great Cold rain from 1970, try 2/11
As the band matures and evolves, they take this tune with them, using it thoughtfully at the closing of the fillmore east, and grooving with it in late 71 with Keith try 10/21. it was played at the 10/20/74 goodbye concert (the only one all year) as a reminder of where they had come from. 76 and 77 versions cook in case you were wondering in a whole new way. and always enjoyable thereon after including with bruce in the 1990's.
I don't think they could have written some of the workingmans dead or american beauty with out being around this type of material.

DP 8 Out-takes, just one song.
If you haven't bought DP 8 like I have you should. I highly recommend it.
I recommend using your EQ during playback of most of the shows on the IA, this one included. Windows Media Player has a 10 band EQ and SRS WOW effects that enhance the sound.
